And then there was Capital Cities, a new band. And I must say: I thought Led Zeppelin had returned to the hit parades. You might know why: the zeppelin on the cover was quite a trick. However, the song is not quite like the Led Zeppelin work. It’s strange, I can’t get a hold on it: what genre it is, I have no idea. That it sounds good is a fact, so today the song of the day is:
Capital Cities- Safe And Sound
Yes, this is the original! I heard Tina Turner’s version lately, and thought: it sounds nice, but that’s about it. The original is better. Which ment to find Robert Palmer and feature him as song of the day. Why? Because it’s a very good song! The music, the text and of course Robert Palmer: that’s what makes a good song! And okay, in the clip the girls are nice to see, but if I’m right (don’t blame me if I’m wrong) they don’t play for real, but are only there to make it look nice. So enjoy today:
Robert Palmer- Addicted To Love
Mmm… the nineties. I love the nineties! And the eighties, of course. And the rest of good music.
Ultimate Kaos is a typical example of a group which had several smaller hits, but one hit which stayed in our minds and which is played more often.
This hit which we remembered has brought them big success, and it is good for a place in the Summer Song of the Day Top 20, number 18!
And yes, I know that they had the song of the day once before, but okay…
Therefore a small fact: it is a cover. The original song is made by LeVert, and they recorded Casanova in 1987!
No. 18: Ultimate Kaos- Casanova
Looking in my list with songs of the day, I only found a Christmas song by them, Last Christmas.
However, they made so much more good music. On another album, Make It Big, there are some big hits like Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Freedom.
On this album not a lot of big hits, but their summer hit is on there!
I’m of course talking about Club Tropicana, the fifth song of the album!
Well, vote for the Summer Song of the day Top 20, since you can!
Whilst listening to the radio, a song came by and I thought: this is the song of saturday!
It’s a song from the early eighties, 1982. Since eighties music = good music, this is a very good song.
The group had more hits that this one, and one of the best known is of course Karma Chameleon.
However, that’s not my choice.
Do you remember the song Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?
Tomorrow another song!
